GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- Green Bay water utility is encouraging neighborhoods to "Adopt a hydrant" during the Winter Season.

Officials are asking city residents to help keep fire hydrants clear of ice and snow after heavy snowfalls.

The city of Green Bay has nearly 3,900 public fire hydrants.

Keeping them free of snow and ice helps the fire department do it's job quickly and efficiently.

As you contemplate "adopting" a fire hydrant and keeping it clear of snow and ice this season, please keep elderly neighbors in mind who might not be capable of clearing hydrants.
